This is a manual written for the One Laptop Per Child project explaining how to use e-books effectively. It includes topics like how to find free e-books, the different e-book formats available, how to create e-books in each format, methods of scanning bound and printed books to create e-books out of them, and options for publishing e-books including the Internet Archive, Project Gutenberg, setting up your own Book Server, and even the Kindle Store. It also talks about making your own book scanner and using software called Booki to collaborate on writing books over the Internet. Thus while the book is intended for students and teachers in the One Laptop Per Child project it contains information that will be useful to anyone interested in e-books.
The EPUB for this title is hand crafted, not automatically generated by the site. A hand crafted Kindle MOBI file is also available. This is missing some of the art and the fancy dropcaps that the other formats have, because the Kindle cannot render these well.
